Need to Know Him
"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you."
This class is about getting to know the King. It is the most important class, because if we do not fall in love with God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, then Catholicism is reduced to a list of rules and regulations. Catholicism is not about rules and regulations, it is about relationship. God is our Father. He is not a tyrant or a master who strikes us down when we make mistakes and he is not a "sugar-daddy" who just gives us everything we want and pays the bill. He is a loving Father who wants his children to become who he created them to be so he can be with them in heaven for all eternity. He is King, but he is not a dictator, and he will never force us to love him. We must choose. God loves us no matter what. We shouldn't strive to be saints to make God love us more or try to earn our way to heaven (we can't), we should strive to be saints because God is our Father and we love Him, and it should break our hearts to be anything less than the saint he created us to be.
